The journey of an entrepreneur can be thrilling but also quite tough, especially if you’re launching a company all on your own. You may feel isolated and uninspired in your home office but hesitant to look for a permanent space because of the high rates traditional office spaces typically command. A great way to avoid this scenario is to rent an office in a coworking space. Not only will you be surrounded by likeminded entrepreneurs with whom to exchange ideas and services, but you also won’t be burning a hole in your wallet.
1. Network every day.
It’s no secret that making connections is the the single most important aspect of success. When you work in a coworking space, you don’t have to waste your time attending networking events because you can make valuable connections by simply going to work. Not to mention, most coworking spaces provide events like happy hours and trainings to foster networking. According to an infographic by Wix and Office Vibe, 91% of people who work in a coworking space said they have better interactions with others.
2. Save cash.
Every bit of money that you save can be reinvested in your startup. Coworking spaces offer flexible contracts where you can pay month-to-month rather than committing to a long-term lease. They also offer great amenities that can save you quite a bit of money over time, like printers, scanners, meeting rooms, free coffee, and more!
One of the greatest aspects of coworking spaces is the opportunity to collaborate. The coworking environment is made up of people with varying skill sets and expertise. Need help designing your website? Talk to the freelance designer down the hall. Want advice on marketing to millennials? Ask the social media expert sitting next to you. There really are endless opportunities to collaborate and help each other in a coworking environment.
4. Thrive on fun!
There’s no denying that coworking spaces offer great vibes, and with such a lively environment comes an overflow of inspiration and motivation to help startups thrive. Our friends at Wix and Office Vibe found that 70% of people working in coworking spaces said they felt healthier than they did working in a traditional office setting. And 60% of people said they felt more relaxed at home since they ditched the home office.
